Hot Water Heater Woes

My faucets run cold, what IS this about?
My hot-water-heater-tank pilot light's out!
Press down that red button and click 'til I pout
Then spew out a string (my religion in doubt)

My stove-top still lights, I can still take a bath!
Boil three piping pots full (I HOPE that will pass)
Teeter and totter like I'm walkin' through glass----
The stopper ain't stoppin', you STUPID dumb-ass!!

    Been there and done that !!!! So funny you are !!! This reminds me once when our power was out for 4 days in a severe storm....we had to boil water on our camp stove.......then run to the shower stall, and pour it over ourselves in the dark.. Our only means of a fun !! Even for a person who likes camping. Somehow it's different when it happens at home! lol !!

    Those baths from water heated 'pon the stove are better than no bath but kinda uncomfortable..Thanks for stopping by..Your comments were uplifting..Sara

    lol, what a cute I can sort of relate to...our light keeps going out, one minute the water is cold, the next it burns your humor in this poem :)
